Hi Ev
          You do not mention what type of TNC if any that you will be 
using for your APRS station. 

If you are using a TNC and it is a KPC3+ then I think you can do the 
following.

Set the four LT commands as.
LT 1 W2EV 10-GHZ CQ
LT 2 W2EV 10-GHZ CQ
LT 3 W2EV 10-GHZ CQ
LT 4 W2EV 10-GHZ CQ
 
Set the four LTP commands to
LTP 1 APRS VIA DIGIA1,DIGIB1,DIGIC1,DIGID1,DIGIE1,DIGIF1
LTP 2 APRS VIA DIGIA2,DIGIB2,DIGIC2,DIGID2,DIGIE2,DIGIF2
LTP 3 APRS VIA DIGIA3,DIGIB3,DIGIC3,DIGID3,DIGIE3,DIGIF3
LTP 4 APRS VIA DIGIA4,DIGIB4,DIGIC4,DIGID4,DIGIE4,DIGIF4

Set the DAYTIME command to set the TNC's DATE TIME

Set the BLT command
Set the START parameter below so the LT beacons go out at different 
times on the hour.
BLT 1 EVERY 00:05:00 START 07:00:00   
BLT 2 EVERY 00:05:00 START 07:10:00   
BLT 3 EVERY 00:05:00 START 07:20:00   
BLT 4 EVERY 00:05:00 START 07:30:00   

The above START times are setup so that 
LT 1 will be transmitted at 7:00 am then every 5 min after that.
LT 2 will be transmitted at 7:10 am then every 5 min after that.
LT 3 will be transmitted at 7:20 am then every 5 min after that.
LT 4 will be transmitted at 7:30 am then every 5 min after that.

Change your START times above to be when you want your LT beacons to 
start.
 
Ev I believe the above will work. But I suggest before next weekend 
you set up your APRS station as shown above on a different freq then 
144.390. Then set up a separate packet station and using a terminal 
program monitor the APRS station to see if the beacons go out at the 
right times with the correct digi paths.

Let me know if the above works. Never tried the above. But do 
remember others using the above to do just what you are trying to do.
